PEOPLE wanting to remember someone special as part of the Primrose Hospice’s Lights of Love have until tomorrow to get their loved ones’ names in the first book of remembrance.
A second remembrance book will then be displayed from December 13 with the deadline for that a week before (Saturday, December 7).
The Lights of Love campaign is the charity’s biggest fund-raiser of the year and last year generated £37,000 for the cause.
For a donation people can dedicate a light on the trees in Bromsgrove, Rubery or Redditch with the names being listed by the tree and messages in the remembrance books.
Emma Williams, the Primrose’s fund-raising manager, said: “Our Lights of Love campaign is for everyone in our community who has lost someone special to them.
“The loved one does not have to have been cared for by Primrose Hospice for people to make a dedication to them.
“We know how important the Lights of Love campaign is to many in our community so we are gently reminding people to make sure they’ve made their dedication by Saturday.”
The books will be displayed around the tree by Asda in Bromsgrove and at the town’s Methodist Centre and Thomas Brothers’ Funeral Directors.
And in Rubery, from November 30, the names will be on the information board by the Christmas tree on New Road.
The Lights of Love Service in Bromsgrove will take place at the Methodist Centre at 3.30pm next Saturday with a blessing of the tree at 5pm outside Asda.
In Rubery there will be the Christmas tree blessing and lights switch-on at 5pm and the Lights of Love Service at 4pm on December 1. And there will be a Carols by Candlelight service at Primrose Hospice in St Godwalds Road, Bromsgrove on Thursday, December 19 from 6pm.
